Hyd edge-past Mumbai Indians in last over thriller
Hyderabad: A brilliant all-round effort helped Sunrisers Hyderabad edge-past Mumbai Indians by one wicket in a thriller Indian Premier League (IPL) match here on Thursday.
After posting 147, Mumbai bowlers did a fantastic job throughout the match but at the end, pacer Ben Cutting failed to hold his nerves and thus lost the issue on the last ball of the innings.
The real action unfolded in the last over. With 11 needed in the 20th over, Deepak Hooda (32 not out), who set the platform at the end, slammed a huge six off Cutting and then the bowlers delivered the wide.
Now, with four needed in five balls, last pair of Hooda and Billy Stanlake (2) some how managed to make it one ball-one run affair and finally, the latter slammed it over the mid-wicket to seal the issue.
For Hyderabad, Mayank Markander scalped four wickets for 24 runs, while Mustafizur Rahman cracked three.
Earlier, Sunrisers Hyderabad restricted Mumbai Indians to 147/8.
Brief scores: Sunrisers Hyderabad 148/9 (Shikhar Dhawan 45; Mayank Markande 4/23). MI 147/8 (Evin Lewis 29, Kieron Pollard 28, Sandeep Sharma 2/25).
